Verse of the Day (December 16, 2019)

Verse of the Day (December 16, 2019) #BMSeminary – Mary’s Song. Based on its opening word in the Latin Vulgate, this song is known as the Magnificat (“glorifies”). Mary’s experience is not only a personal one but also reflects the reversal of fortunes that people will experience through her son (vv. 52-55). This song’s themes and language resemble those of Hannah’s song (1 Sam 2:1-10); both foreshadow God’s acts of deliverance. It also echoes OT psalms of thanksgiving that contain both a note of thanksgiving and the reasons for such thanksgiving (Pss 30; 34; 138). (Zondervan Study Bible)
